Missing MH370: I'm feeling excited in KLIA, Iranian imposter posted on FB

PETALING JAYA, Malaysia - Nineteen-year old Pouria Nour Mohammad Mehrdad who was identified as one of the two men travelling on the MH370 with a stolen passport, in his last Facebook post said that he was 'feeling excited'.

Pouria along with 29-year-old Delavar Syed Mohammad Reza (the other man identified with the stolen passport), were both believed to be heading to Europe to start a new life there.

Pouria had boarded MH370 bound for Beijing on Saturday and from there planned to travel to Frankfurt, Germany where his mother lives, but disappeared an hour after the jetliner took off from Kuala Lumpur.

Interpol recently released both the images of Pouria and Delavar as individuals travelling with stolen passports.

An Interpol official said the men travelled to Malaysia with their Iranian passports and only changed to stolen passports for the first leg of their journey to Europe.

All possibilities of the individuals being connected to terrorism has been ruled out.

According to Time, the teen knew he was at risk leaving Iran and asked his friends to pray for his safety.

His Facebook timeline showed that he arrived in KL on Feb 28 and was excited about it.

According to news.com, on Feb 24 he posted a cryptic message revealing he was planning to deactivate his account, and later revealed he wasn't planning to return to Iran.

Some hadn't realised he had even left Iran until he posted pictures of himself in Kuala Lumpur and had revealed "Thanks to all of those who prayed for me, I'm safe."

Following the MH370 incident, some 137 messages were left on the comment section, praying for his safety and asking for him to return home.

Facebook user, Lau Crypto said 'HELLO i dont know you, but i do know it need a lot of courage to fleed Iran and build up a life somewere else, I DO HOPE your plane is safe somewere and that you can live your life how you want it take care praying hat you and all the others are safe!!!

May you and the other passengers and crew on Malaysian flight 370, be found safe and may your journey continue to find yourself safe in your mothers arms again, prayers and thoughts to your mum from me in Australia'.
